Overcharge for Unit in J-51 Building Must Be Calculated Using Regina Methodology
LVT Number: #31271
Tenant complained to the DHCR of rent overcharge and improper apartment deregulation. Landlord admitted that the apartment had been mistakenly deregulated while the building received J-51 tax benefits. But landlord claimed that tenant received a $1,300 preferential rent in 2011 when he moved in, and that it had properly preserved a higher legal regulated rent of $2,125.
